Critics might not have been kind to “Golmaal Again” though a executive Rohit Shetty is happy that a movie, his costliest so far, is doing good during a box office. The film, that reportedly expelled in 3,500 screens, non-stop during over Rs 30 crore. The 44-year-old filmmaker says, “‘Golmaal…’ has got a top opening and minted a fastest Rs 100 crore of this year. After examination a film, we were certain adequate it will work though to what border we did not know. We did not consider we would get such an strenuous response. But we were certain that family assembly will come to see a film.”

The five-day domestic business of a comedy stands during Rs 116.89 crore, given a recover on Oct 20. Shetty says he is never demotivated by reviews as focuses on audiences’ reaction. “This is my 10th film and it has been 27 years as a director. we know it (negative reviews) happens. (But) we don’t review reviews. From a audiences’ greeting and box bureau collections, we come to know how most a film has been loved.

“Comedy films are mostly looked down on and they will never be appreciated, so we can’t get vexed about it and take it seriously,” he said. With a fourth “Golmaal” installment, Rohit experimented by clubbing humour with a component of horror.

“I did not wish it to be an all-comedy film. We did not wish to make it as any other comedy film. It is a costliest film of mine. We had to take this code a nick higher. Even with ‘Chennai Express’, we combined thespian scenes in a second half,” he says. The film clashed with Aamir Khan’s “Secret Superstar” and Rohit says given a Diwali container is mostly seen as a face-off among large releases, it was apparent that a series of screens would be divided.

“When dual films recover together we don’t know what will work. Nobody can envision what is going to occur on a Friday. The opening numbers of ‘Golmaal Again’ are a top for this year. “But if there was no clash, a opening would have been bigger. we can contend this from a greeting of a audience. But for me, Rs 30 crore is also a large number.”


Rohit adds a genre and aim of dual cinema were different. “If a space of both a films was same afterwards it would have been a problem for both of us,” he concluded.
